i found this comic recently while stumbling upon this refinery29 article. when i first saw the one above, i immediately started bawling my eyes out. it hits a little too close to home, so i decided to turn it into a lil psa. mental illness is tricky to understand, even when you suffer from one because everyone experiences them so differently. that being said, there are a few commonalities that nearly anyone affected can relate to. some days it's easy to feel so absolutely overwhelmed that getting through 24 hours alive is an accomplishment in itself. it's important to be gentle and soft and smooshy to anyone suffering from a mental illness because it often makes even mundane tasks difficult and feel unachievable. they need a lil extra love and it will make you feel better giving it to them as well. so next time someone is beating themselves up, remind them that they're doing their best.
documenting the fun years.
